Israel’s Defense Forces (IDF) said on Wednesday that three Palestinians armed with knives were caught breaching Gaza’s border fence.
“A short while ago, IDF troops spotted three suspects crossing the security fence and infiltrating into Israel from the southern Gaza Strip. In response, the troops fired at the suspects. Knives were found in their possession,” IDF said in a statement.
IDF is currently deployed in large numbers at the Gaza border after last week’s surge in violence in the Hamas run-enclave.
